Great Week, Good Friday

Happy Friday lovelies!

I'm so relieved we have Good Friday off of work today. Otherwise I would be a zombie at work after arriving home late last night after 5 nights in San Francisco. It was an awesome and extremely busy trip. I'm talking 11-hour work days but thankfully I had some time to squeeze in some site-seeing and meet up with friends.

I posted about my trip out to Sonoma Wine Country last weekend which was such a great experience.

Other than work, I...

* Visited The View Lounge with coworkers to enjoy some views of downtown San Francisco.

* Went to Haight Street for $2 beer night with a friend (like the good old colleges day). Truthfully, I prefer dive bars than a fancy digs to relax and unwind after busy, business/formal days.

* Did more shopping than I had planned and had to buy an extra duffel bag to bring stuff home. (My hotel was in the heart of the shopping district which is just bad news.)

* Got kicked out a taxi because the taxi driver said we were touching the back of his neck (my friend and I were in full conversation in the back of the taxi not even paying attention or "touching" him). Taxi dude clearly showed up for work high on some sort of drug. Best we get kicked out, right?

* Went to Bask Tapas restaurant with friends followed by walking around Little Italy and a few more drinks before calling it a night.

* Flew home bright and early yesterday morning. With several delays and a layover in St. Louis, I made it home in about 12 hours. Not to mention the 3 hour time difference which totally screws you more so flying back to the east coast. I'm so, so happy to have the weekend to readjust and get back to reality.

Happy weekend to everyone and hope you enjoy Easter!

  1. Looks like a great work and play trip :)! Glad you'll get some time to recoup today! Have a fabulous Easter weekend.

  2. Having a hotel in the middle of shopping district is just asking for trouble! Haha! Hope you got some good stuff. Looks like a good balance of work and play! ;)

  3. So glad you had a good trip out to Cali! Totally jealous of those amazing views at that lounge! And having a hotel in the middle of an awesome shopping district is always bad (but good) news! I totally would have had to buy luggage to bring stuff home too. Enjoy your relaxing weekend girlie!

  11. Isn’t San Francisco such a great city?! We loved visiting there – it’s great you got to do some things other than work! I had to buy an extra bag there too to bring things home in!!

  12. That taxi driver sounds nuts! Sounds like you had a great time though. Hope you have a good weekend.

  13. It seems every time I travel I have to buy an extra bag so I totally feel you on that! haha Glad you had a fabulous time! The taxi driver story though ... I think you should thank your lucky stars you got kicked out haha

  14. I have the worst time adjusting to time. It was hell to come back to the east coast from the west.
